I spoke with you about putting a 2004R in my 50′ 3100. I never thought to ask what to do about supporting the rear of the engine when the stock bell housing is removed. I know I will need a transmission mount for the 200 4R but is seem like that the torque from the motor will make it tip over? Any suggestions?
By Tom, November 14, 2011 @ 2:53 pm
Yes, you will need to fabricate mounts off of the transmission – to – adapter plate bolts to control the engine torque.
By Hudson, November 14, 2011 @ 8:49 pm
I’m looking at this carb adapter. Will this fit my ford 300 I6?? If not, do you know of any that will??
By Tom, November 15, 2011 @ 2:16 pm
Yes, it will fit your 2-15/16″ spacer studs.
By Hudson, November 15, 2011 @ 5:46 pm
Thanks, Tom. Also, this will fight a weber progessive 32/36 carb, right??
Thanks again, Hudson
By Tom, November 17, 2011 @ 2:11 pm
Yes, it fits the Weber 32/36.
By Tom, November 7, 2011 @ 2:30 pm
The dual carb set up is the best but it costs more but the single Holly Weber carb makes a nice affordable upgrade.
The S-10 5 speed overdrive manual transmission, is the simplest overdrive conversion.

I have a 292ci that has a cobbled together accessory bracket system. It has been modded to run a stock GM power steering pump, and the truck (64 longbed fleetside) is sitting on a 73′ 3/4 ton Chevy frame. What I really need to find is a pulley and bracket set up to run power steering and alternator. Do you guys have something like this or know where I need to look? The problem I am running into is that I cannot get the alternator belt tensioned enough to charge the system properly or reliably. I would like to get away from just making do and put together a quality system for it in one shot, one that works.
By Tom, November 7, 2011 @ 2:25 pm
Sorry, I can’t help.
These parts (in a complete “SET”) are very very hard to find.
By Vic Enns, November 8, 2011 @ 4:06 pm
I’m replying this route because I’ve not tried emailing you before so don’t know how to start a conversation when asking you for advice.
I also have a rebuilt 292 that I’ve installed in a 38 chevy trk; I bought a triple intake and a split exhaust manifolds from you but I need a starting point to put fuel jets in the three 1-barrel rochester carbs.
It seem’s like I once read that you ended up with a 0.042 for the primary carb and 0.032 in the two secondary carbs.
Would you comment on a size of jets that you have exiperence so that I have a start point?
You were right the offenhouser linkage was not what I needed for this set up.
By Tom, November 9, 2011 @ 1:38 pm
Original jet sizes should be the place where you start but your (USED??) carbs may not have original jets.
Sorry, I do not know exactly what to recommend.
By jim hoff, November 10, 2011 @ 12:57 pm
I put the alt and power stering off a intergrated head 79 chevy and made the top bracket work with alittle mod
By chally, November 6, 2011 @ 1:16 pm
should have said that i can go with both manual or auto trans the aim is to get more driveability at highway speed

I need T5 advise.
I have a 1963 Chevy ii, nova, ss that came with a 194 and a floor shift powerglide. The 1963 chevy ii has the wider bucket seats which are almost like bench seats.
I am currently building an engine for the car. The motor is a 1969 chevy truck 250 with lump port heads, holley 390 double pumper with mechanical secondaries, offy intake, hei dist., and soon I will order your headers and heat plate and install a 2 inch diameter dual exhaust with glass packs.
I am looking for a t5 tranny per your recommendations posted on this site. I already have a new 153 tooth flywheel and a 10-1/2 inch performance clutch setup.
My questions are:
1) What year/style T5 tranny will be the best to look for?
2) Will I have to cut the floor or just purchase the floor hump four speed hole (I do not want to modify the floor if I don’t have to)?
3) I have no idea what hp or torque I will be making but I listed the engine build specs so you could advise if I can use a t5 from a six cylinder to handle the mods listed above or do I need a WC?
4) I have a 309 bell housing and plan on using the mechanical clutch linkage but does this limit the year and eliminate V8 trannies for my set up (the splines are different so I know I need a new clutch plate, but the twited mount seems like a problem to me)?
5) When you recommend a tranny, please let me know what rear end would be a good swap as this is the last piece of the drivetrain puzzle.
I have no problem getting parts from several trannies to piece together a good solid tranny that will be a joy to drive and reliable for years. I hate buying the wrong stuff.
Thanks for this site and thanks in advance for all your help.
By Tom, November 7, 2011 @ 2:21 pm
We need to know the shifter location so measure how far back from the bell housing to the best location for the shifter, then call to discuss.
By hernan, November 4, 2011 @ 1:25 am
hi i have a nova 70 inline everything is stock, plain simple i want to make it fast what parts should i start off with first i dont want to spent a lot of money yet
By Tom, November 4, 2011 @ 2:33 pm
First, how much can you spend.
Check out our catalog, prices are listed.
Review some of the replies I have already given on similar questions and see what may fit for you.
What transmission? If a powerglide, start by adding an overdrive transmission, not a low cost item but best bang for your buck!
By kyle smith, November 3, 2011 @ 9:12 pm
hello i have a 1972 gmc c25 w/ 292 I-6 i want to upgrade to a 2bbl i have a weber/holley progressive carb 32/36 will this work? is that the same 2bbl you sell? looks the same. im told its between 270-300cfm what jet size should i start with?
how much would it cost for the 1bbl to 2bbl adapter+shipping? thank you!
By Tom, November 4, 2011 @ 2:25 pm
We sell the adapter on our web site, $15.00 + shipping.
The H/W you have should work however you may want to purchase our air cleaner, brushed or polished.
Bolt it up, get it running and see how it performs. Many times the jetting is fine.
By kyle smith, November 9, 2011 @ 8:07 pm
hello me again i am wondering what model is your weber 2bbl you offer? is it a 32/36 or a 38/38? is it 80$ i have a 32/36 so if its the 38/38 i will probably order one at the same time i get the 1 to 2bbl adapter this week thank you so much!
By Tom, November 10, 2011 @ 2:01 pm
Our Holley is a 32/36 or Holley model 5200 and is the one I would recommend.
The 38/38 is NOT a progressive type so it is TOO big for good driveability.
By Frank, October 30, 2011 @ 11:11 am
I have a stock 1974 Nova 250 6 cylinder, where can I get a replacement exhaust manifold? If no manifolds are available, any recommendation about headers?
By Frank, November 1, 2011 @ 6:12 pm
Tom, will your stovebolt exhaust headers work for my Nova situation above? I’d like to order them if they work for me, I cant seemt to find an exhaust manifold that isnt rusted out
By Tom, November 3, 2011 @ 2:38 pm
Yes. they will work fine.
At times I do get some N.O.S. G.M. factory exhaust manifolds. Call to discuss.
By Tom, November 3, 2011 @ 3:39 pm
I just got a few N.O.S. G.M. manifolds in.
Call to order.
By Emmett Byars, October 29, 2011 @ 6:53 pm
I am installing a dual single barrel Offy intake on my 235.
Will your heat plate that you sell fit my Offy intake?
By Tom, October 31, 2011 @ 8:33 am
Yes, it will fit. We have them in stock ($35.00 + $5.25 shipping).
By Tom, October 31, 2011 @ 8:43 am
Yes, it will fit. We have them in stock ($35.00 + 5.25 shipping.)
By Matt, October 25, 2011 @ 2:23 pm
I’m currently driving a 1950 chevy buisness coupe I would like to update the enclosed driveline with later model equipment, while retaining the three speed on the column any thoughts on trans. and rearend?
By Tom, October 27, 2011 @ 4:16 pm
I would use a rear axle from a 1983 – 1088 S-10 4WD with a 3.73 or 4.10 ratio.
The trans could be a Chevy Overdrive (3 speed + O.D.)
There were two designs.
1- 1955 – 1964 Non synchronized 1st gear
2- 1967 – 1972 Full synchronized “Saginaw”
By Les, October 30, 2011 @ 9:37 pm
I agree with Tom about the rear end. Some more info for the trans is to check into a Borg Warner R10. It is a 3 speed manual with overdrive that will allow you to shift on the tree.
By Tom, October 31, 2011 @ 2:36 pm
By Mitchell, October 17, 2011 @ 9:02 pm
I have some concern with my 250 in my 78 Nova, these originally came with the integral head so I opted for a Jasper 250 without. My question is considering both power and fuel mileage. I have an Offy 4bbl intake and sitting on that USED to be a Holley 500cfm but with that setup I just couldn’t manage to get my rpms down enough and I was on average getting around 6 MPG! I finally decided on a 250cfm Holley which only got me up to about 15.5 MPG. My trans is the stock TH350 with a 2.73 ratio in the rear. Is there any way you may be able to advise me on the best method for obtaining close to 20 MPG without burning up my wallet and maintaining a decent amount of power?
One last thing, with the setup I have the throttle and transmission linkage to my carb don’t exactly work too smoothly, right now I have an Offy throttle cable kit which 90 degrees my cable to get to the carb correctly, is there any other kit out there that would work a lot smoother for this application? Thank You.
By Tom, October 19, 2011 @ 3:25 pm
I would use a THM 350 which uses a LOCK-UP torque convertor for improved fuel economy.
The best carb would be a 390 four barrel (195 CFM on the primaries)
The 350 CFM two barrel is a poor choice.
Make sure your Offy inlet manifold is heated.
Sorry, I can’t help with linkage.
By Mitchell, October 24, 2011 @ 10:30 pm
Thank You very much for your insight, would you know by chance if there was a casing or size change aside from the wiring that may be an issue to bolt it right up, I’ve discovered two type some with a multi-fit and some w/o multi-fit. Thank You.
By Tom, October 28, 2011 @ 3:03 pm
The 200 4R transmission used a multi fit bolt pattern.
By Tom, November 1, 2011 @ 5:04 pm
I think the general casing size is the same for both bolt patterns.
By mark hathaway, October 26, 2011 @ 1:25 pm
me again tom 1950 six dont know mutch about these motors what is the knob on the side of the distributer
By Tom, October 27, 2011 @ 4:18 pm
I’m not sure what knob you are referring to.
It could be the grease cup. Send a picture.
By Steve Allen, October 16, 2011 @ 9:21 pm
Hi Tom, I’m enjoying the dual carb set up and 5 speed transmission I got from you for my 1954 chevy panel , heres my questions, sometimes it will start to run rough I can remove the throttle linkage from either one of the carbs and it will run fine on the one , seems like my stock fuel pump won’t keep up ? Do they make a high volume mechanical pump ? Do you think I need one ? Or should I use an electric pump ? Thanks, keep it inline.
By Tom, October 19, 2011 @ 3:19 pm
A stock fuel pump is just fine if it holds 4 PSI.
By Daniel, October 16, 2011 @ 5:09 pm
Will the motor mount kit (SKU 55-1108) work in a 53 Chevy car, the text states the photo is for trucks. Wanting to put a 250 engine in a 53 chevy 210 car?
By Tom, October 19, 2011 @ 3:07 pm
Yes, we have a kit for a 250 in a 1953 passenger car.
(It is not the one in the picture)
By Tyler Follis, October 15, 2011 @ 5:25 pm
I have a 230/250 straight 6 in my 1967 truck. I am building a rat rod project with it and i am considering stepping up the performance on the 6 instead of that tired overdone 350 drop in. any suggestions on a few upgrades that will increase my motor output that are relatively easy to install?
By Tom, October 18, 2011 @ 4:57 pm
1- Switch to an overdrive transmission and perhaps change the axle ratio.
2- Add our split exhaust manifold
3- Replace your ignition with our GM HEI dist.
4- Change your inlet manifold to 1 x 4 bbl
The change you will “feel” the most is the overdrive, assuming you now have a powerglide or 3 speed.
By luc, October 5, 2011 @ 1:53 pm
Hi Tom. Regarding the 08-1015 monojet to 2 bbl carb adapter, Will this work with a 2bbl edelbrock 350-500 cfm carb? Its going on a 1980 292 that I’ve placed in my 1978 GMC C1500 sierra along with a 700R4 and the factory 2.76 rear gear.
By Gerry Smith, October 12, 2011 @ 11:47 am
Hi Tom ! can i use 235 rods in a 292 ? i want to ad compression . i look for pistons with smaller dish . no luck! if i can use the 235 rods and then mill down the pistons to make smaller dish volume and clear the head . or is there a better way to get 10.5:1 compression.
By Tom, October 13, 2011 @ 1:28 pm
NO, the 235 rods have a much larger journal diameter.
By Eric, October 13, 2011 @ 4:06 pm
Hi my name is Eric Im looking for an intake manifold for my 1973 chevy nova. The motor is the straight 6 but not sure what size. Any suggestions?
By Tom, October 28, 2011 @ 3:24 pm
We can supply an Offenhauser 4 BBL Manifold. $235.00 + shipping.
Your engine is most likly a 250 but after 38 years, anything could have happened.
By Bruce, October 5, 2011 @ 2:07 am
I recently bought an offenhauser valve cover for the 292 I’m building. However, this cover does not have a provision for a pcv setup. What would you recommend for adequate venting? I plan on buying your cast iron headers and finned side plates in a couple weeks.
By Tom, October 28, 2011 @ 3:43 pm
The Offy valve cover is defective in design.
The best use for it is to hang it up on a wall.
By Greg, October 3, 2011 @ 9:51 pm
Just picked up a 61 Biscayne with a six banger. The number on the top of the engine says 3836848. It doesnt show up anywhere I have checked in the books. The guy says it’s a 235, but it looks bigger than a 235. Do you have any ides what I have? Thanks.
By Tom, October 27, 2011 @ 3:37 pm
Your 3836848 casting is a cylinder head part number and is correct for a 1961 235 engine.
By tom, September 26, 2011 @ 11:10 am
I am going to buy Fenton exhaust for my 235 ci. What diameter exhaust pipes will need? I am also going to install a 2 carb manifold with the weber progressives. Also, any suggestions on muffler? I ran Flowmaster on another street rod and loved the sound but I am not sure what to put on a I8?
Thanks Tom S
By Tom, September 26, 2011 @ 10:32 pm
I recommend the Williams brand header for a better fit but bothe the Williams and Fenton take a 2″ O.D. front pipe. Mufflers are a personal choice for sound. Most Inliners like the sound of glass-pacs with little round holes on the inside.

I have a 1955 235 engine out of a Chevy Bel-Air that I am putting into my 1946 chevy 1/2 ton pickup. I was wandering if there is a side motor mount kit for my application? I put in a Mustang 2 front end and had to cut out the front motor mount section on the crossmember. Any thoughts?
By Tom, September 26, 2011 @ 4:09 pm
Sorry, the 1955 235 does NOT have provision for (MID) side motor mounts.

By Tom, October 3, 2011 @ 10:37 am
Our Holley Weber makes a nice upgrade (for a truck) but may have hood clearance issues on a passenger car.
By Matt, September 6, 2011 @ 5:31 pm
Tom, I am running a 194 6cyl in my 64 Nova and recently attempted to run dual Holley webbers (rebuilt used) on it with disappointing results. Install and linkage setup was fine, but I never could get the carbs to idle right. They kept wanting to run at 1500RPM at idle even with the idle screws adjusted all the way out. It also seemed to run too rich even when leaned out to only 1/8th out from full closed on the mix screws. I traced part of the problem to worn primary throttle shafts and removed the carbs since further tuning attempts would be useless. I am considering purchasing some replacment Holley Webber carbs and attempt this again. Question: Are the Holley webbers you sell too big for a 194 displacement to run as duals? Or are the Carter Webbers that are recomended a better chioce? Whats the difference between the two or what makes one better than the other? Currently I am running dual Holley 1bbl carbs that work decent but I am looking for a better performing carbs. I figured a a pair of 2bbl progressives would work better than two 1bbls..especially when I need the extra power from the secondaries. Your time and suggestions would be appreciated.
By Tom, September 12, 2011 @ 2:12 pm
Our Carter Weber’s are NEW (not rebuilt) and a better choice.
By Matt, September 20, 2011 @ 11:03 am
Thanks for the reply Tom. Is there any chance that you could provide more pics of the Carter Webbers you sell?. I’d like to see the linkage side to get an idea of how these would be installed and hooked up. Can’t see it in the provided pic. I’ve never seen or tinkered with one of these before, so I’m not too familiar with em. Also, do you offer an air cleaner for these? I noticed the top air horn is different in shape than the Holley Webbers. The air cleaners shown that you sell look to have a diamond shaped hole more suited for the holley webbers while the carter webbers have more of a rectangular shape. Thanks, Matt

By colin, August 31, 2011 @ 10:32 pm
hi Tom on my 195 inline 6 it is stock ,if I run a offy with 4 barrel carb should i get my motor rebuilt ,,and if I run 2 small carbs do i need to rebuild my motor and how does the 2 carbs work like both work at the same time and do they need more adjustments down the road.

I have a 1954 235 straight 6. I’m wanting to replace the single rochester with a dual carb setup with Carter/Webers. I currently have a manual choke and the Carter/Webers have electronic, What would be involved in setting up the electronic choke?
By Tom, August 10, 2011 @ 3:05 pm
You need to run a wire to (both) chokes from the ignition “ON” terminal.
By Noah, August 10, 2011 @ 6:57 am
I have decided to go ahead and throw the x2 Carter webers carbs on with a double intake. My next step will be to get a good transmission. After some research I found an 86 Camaro T-5, 5 speed transmission. I also found a 86 S10 T-5 5 speed transmission that is junked and the synchro on 2 gears are shot on.
I read somewhere that I could replace the tailshaft on the Camaro one with the one off of the S10 so that the shifter will have room in front on my bench seat instead on “IN” my bench seat. What is you input on this and what components do I need to get besides the Carter Weber carb set? I need the stovebolt linkage kit for the dual carbs correct?
By Noah, August 9, 2011 @ 3:05 am
So I decided to rebuild my 235 and was wondering on which carbs i should put on it. I was looking at your products and can’t settle on either the Dual carbs or the Double Barrel Single Carb w/ progressive. My engine is completely stock and was wondering if i would benefit from the duals or the single double progressive carb for gas mileage and maybe even a little boost in performance. The truck im doing this for is my 59 chevy apache 31. This is the first vehicle I ever owned and want it to be top notch. I am only 19 years old so my knowledge base isn’t the best but I am steadily learning. And by chance do you offer military discount on anything? I am in the US Army and thought I might just ask.
SPC Kehoe, Noah
By Tom, August 9, 2011 @ 2:17 pm
The dual carbs will help make more power if you can afford the expense.
We do offer free shipping for active military.
Installing a S-10 5 speed overdrive transmission should be one of your top priority projects for you pick-up.
By noah, August 9, 2011 @ 2:39 pm
I’m trying avoid losing my stick shift. Is there a certain transmission that is not automatic which will fit? And would the duals help with MPG?
By Noah, August 10, 2011 @ 2:28 am
I took a look at the transmission (T5) sorry about the confussion on the automatic, I was looking over the details and this is a stick shift. I appreciate the information.

I have a 1959 chevy apache with a 235 with a manual trans. I am wondering what it would take to swap out the 235 for a 350 and what type of bell housing adapter i would need to bolt up to the original trans. And should I replace the trans or will the one in it do the job?
By Tom, August 15, 2011 @ 3:28 pm
The factory used the V8 in the 1959 pick Up so all parts would be available.
We do not work on or advise on V8 projects.
By Ryan, August 3, 2011 @ 9:48 pm
I just talked to you this afternoon and ordered your motor mounts to install a 230 into my 1952 chevy 2 door sedan.
i was wondering if there was anything I need to do about the transmission crossmember. The transmission I’m using is a saginaw 3 speed out of a 63 chevy II or vette with a hurst mastershift floor shifter. Obviously the tail housing of the transmission won’t bolt directly to the cross member with some modification to the crossmember, but will I have to use a whole new crossmember or is there something I can do to the current one to make it fit?
By Tom, August 26, 2011 @ 2:23 pm
Sorry, I have never done this combination.
By Tim, July 30, 2011 @ 9:39 am
Can your cast iron headers for the Chevy 292 be bolted to the engine with the stock intake manifold? Also, I want to put a 700R4 behind this engine which bolts directly on, but I am having a hard time finding the correct flex plate. Do you have one?
By Tom, August 3, 2011 @ 5:07 pm
Yes, our headers fit fine with the stock intake.
The 292 was never used with the 700R4 so there is no “correct” flywheel that you can buy. You will need to use a THM 350 flexplate and modify the bolt holes to the crank, or use a 292 flexplate and re-drill the holes for the 700R4 torque convertor.
By Scott, July 27, 2011 @ 8:41 am
I have a 1950 IH L-220 with a 240 intake (i don’t know if that matters). I want to convert to a weber. I am looking at ordering the adapter, carb, linkage, and electric choke. Your air cleaners are a bit to fancy for my truck so I’m going to get a simpler one else were if I can find one I like. I only have two questions. 1 Will this be a pretty much bolt on conversion or will some engineering need to be done. 2 what is the model of the carb you sell for the conversion so I can start looking for air cleaners. Thanks, Scott

The most common conversion uses a ’55-’62 1/2 ton truck axle assembly or at least the center section. Another option would be to use a ’63-’67 1/2 ton axle assembly (6 lug wheels) with 3.73 ratio.
Combine this with a T-5 transmission from an ’83-’87 S-10 truck (with 2.8L V6 engine only ) and you will have a very nice combination.
By kurt, August 22, 2011 @ 11:26 am
if i was to use a GM T-5 transmission in my 46 chevy truck, would i have to use a different bell housing too?, im changing my rear to a 5 lug s-10 rear in order to get rid of the torque tube ,im running a 216 engine now, but will be swapping for an early 235, when I can round up all the parts, i just installed a new clutch and would i have to change out the clutch disc too? or will the teeth line up on the tranny shaft with the disc?……thanks

Thanks for the feed-back.
By budgetbuilt51, July 22, 2011 @ 3:49 pm
I have a Inline 6 chevy 235 out of a 59 APACHE, but my truck is a 1953 Chevy P/U. The issue is that the 59 motor mounts were on the front biscuit style. Now my truck had the front piece were the front motor mount goes cut off.
I was told that the 235 has a mid mount option also that if i find a adapter kit it would work?
Does the one carry work for this dilemma???
By Tom, July 23, 2011 @ 9:46 am
We do have a kit for the 250 that could easily be modified for your 235. Call to discuss and order. 586-739-9601.

By Tom, July 23, 2011 @ 9:28 am
Sorry, but my supplier shows that the kit only fits 1940-1954 trucks. If you are using a 250 or 292 we could supply the engine brackets and cushion set ($100.00) + shipping.
By deuce, July 9, 2011 @ 8:59 am
I have a 54 Bel air with the 235 motor with stock manifold, I would like to purchase the holley webber
progressive 2 barrel You guys sell. I would like to know if I needed to buy anything else besides the carb
and the adapter from 1 barrel to 2 barrel? Will the linkage match up?
By Tom, July 13, 2011 @ 2:29 pm
You will need the following for your 1954 Chevy:
Carb Adapter, Carb, Linkage, Electric Choke, Air cleaner and an air cleaner spacer.
By justin, June 29, 2011 @ 6:06 pm
hello i have chevy 250 that i want to put in a 53 belair. i have motor mount that came with the motor but i am missing the triangle shaped side mounts that attached to motor. Can you tell me what i need?
By Tom, June 29, 2011 @ 9:20 pm
We have a complete mount kit for $140 + shipping which includes everything you need.
By johnhull, June 23, 2011 @ 2:43 pm
tom thanks for the quick response on shipping the 2/1 adapter.my quistion is i am working with 1972 250 6 cheve ;what would be the best way to get max cubic inchs,with out going to a292.thanks in advance.
By Tom, June 24, 2011 @ 11:22 pm
The only PRACTICAL way is to overbore the cylinders .060″ for an additional 9 cu.in.
By Travis, June 21, 2011 @ 9:31 pm
I was looking at the linkage for the rochester carburetor(s) i just have a few questions. 1. How many carbs is this linkage used for? 2. Is there instructions for the installation of the linkage.
By Travis, June 21, 2011 @ 9:40 pm
I am also looking at the 2×1 1bbl carb intake for the 292 L6, and i was wondering if there is a bolt kit for it, a gasket, and instructions.
By Tom, June 25, 2011 @ 12:10 am
Purchase seperately from your local auto parts store.
By Tom, June 25, 2011 @ 12:09 am
Sorry we do not deal with Rochester carbs.
By Jamie Matacia, June 19, 2011 @ 9:23 am
I have a 1968 P10 Chevy step van with a 230 cid inline six. I put Pacesetter headers on it and am not happy with the amount of heat that is being generated. I have looked at your exhaust manifolds to switch to. Will these cut down on the heat situation and will they work with a offenhauser intake…Thanks for your time…Jamie
By Ray, June 14, 2011 @ 5:07 pm
i need a 3 speed floor shifter for a stock 53 GMC 1/2 ton – the column shift is shot & doesnt work so a floor shift is all i can think of at this point.
Does any-one make 1 for a this truck ??
By Tom, June 25, 2011 @ 12:13 am
Sorry, we can’t help.
By Darrell, June 12, 2011 @ 11:04 am
Tom, I have a 1960 Rambler Custom with 196 OHV. Will the Holley 5200 work? I bought one from you for my 35 Plymouth PJ and works GREAT.
By Tom, June 25, 2011 @ 12:14 am
Yes, it will work. Call to discuss 586-739-9601.
By Robert, June 8, 2011 @ 7:41 pm
I just bought a 1950 2 door sedan. I was told it had a 235ci, but I’m not sure. I have to order some parts for it and want to make sure it is what I think it is. How can I tell the difference between a 235 and a 215?
By Eugene, August 7, 2011 @ 7:27 pm
From the Factory the 235 only came with cars with the Power glide Auto trans. If it had the Man. 3 on the tree it came from the Factory with the 215. hope that helps some. My 1950 2 door styleline is a Manual trans with the 215.
By Tom, August 9, 2011 @ 2:09 pm
Thank you Eugene.
(ADDED BY TOM)
Note: In 1950 – 1952 Only
Note: Engine size is 216 not 215
By Arlin, September 4, 2011 @ 12:08 pm
Arent the side plates different from a 235 to a 216 ?
By Tom, September 12, 2011 @ 2:08 pm
By Nicholas, May 31, 2011 @ 3:45 pm
What model is your rebuilt weber carb that yo sell? DGEV? DFEV? ?, I have one that looks similar but not sure, I would like to be able to rebuild and purchase one of your adapters.
By Tom, June 2, 2011 @ 7:28 pm
Our cars are the DFEV type (Holley #5200 model) as used on the Pinto. Our adapters will fit your DGEV type also.
By Blain Quinby, May 31, 2011 @ 12:48 pm
Hello, I have a 1972 Chevrolet 250. I put a 1967 292 intake and carb on it to do away with the emissions “stuff”. I set the timing at the factory 4 degrees advanced. I used the original size 72 jet in the carb. When i was using that jet, I would accelerate and it would sputter and die if i didnt let off. Like it was getting way too much fuel, or not enough. Assuming that this carburetor was jetted for the larger 292, I jetted it down quite a bit and its still almost as bad, even when its warmed up. This engine idles perfect. I DON’T know for sure that the fuel pump is good. Whats my problem?
By Steve Carey, June 22, 2011 @ 7:00 pm
You don’t say what kind of carburetor you have, but I had a similar problem when I still had the Rochester Monojet on my 250. When I installed the metering rod, I put the retaining spring on the bottom of the actuating arm. As the arm pulled the metering rod out of the jet, the spring pushed the rod back into the jet, cutting off the fuel needed to accelerate. After the spring was correctly placed on top of the arm, which pulled the metering rod tight to the arm, acceleration returned to normal.
By Miles, May 25, 2011 @ 10:10 am
I picked up a pair of your weber carbs and 2x offy intake in the winter for my project, started out I was going to use a 230, now I’m thinking a 292, can I still use the carbs?
By Tom, May 25, 2011 @ 1:47 pm
Yes, you can use them.
By Miles, May 25, 2011 @ 1:51 pm
I was worried because on the sheet provided it states that these dual carbs used on 250 or smaller applications. I won’t run out of CFM? Will I need bigger jets than ones provided?
By Devlin, May 30, 2011 @ 2:56 pm
I’m with this guy Tom. I’m the guy that was talking to you about trading out my McGurk intake. I have decided it’s just too pretty to part with so I am going to order two sets on your Webbers and use three of them and have a spare. Out of the box do you think I’ll need to do any thing to the Webbers. This was a 54 Chevy w/ a 235 with a little bit of a cam, McGurk 3 carb intake (just like yours Tom), and split headers.
Thanks Tom and I’ll be callin you with an order in a week or two.
By Tom, June 25, 2011 @ 12:24 am
The Carter Webers work excellently out of the box.
By Daniel B. Hernandez, May 15, 2011 @ 8:19 pm
I’m about ready to do the plumbing on my 56 235. I see that some people use bent metal pipes that they done themselves. My question is what do I need know to do this myself? (Etc. What type of metal, copper? Size of piping? Special tools, fittings needed? What would you do?) Thanks for any help.
Daniel B. Hernandez
By Scott, May 11, 2011 @ 12:13 am
I Have a IH silver diamond 220 that needs a new carb. It takes a holley 1904 I was wondering if the weber 2bbl adapter you sell would work on my manifold. The manifold is actually off a 240. I also would like to know if my weber 38 would work. Thank you.
By Tom, May 11, 2011 @ 1:36 pm
Yes, our adapter will work on your engine but I do not recommend the 38 mm Weber because it is not a progressive Carb (both barrels open together)
the Holly Weber 32/36 would be a better choice.
By Scott, May 15, 2011 @ 9:47 am
Thanks For the reply. the 38 will just be temporary cus I have one on hand and the carb on it is broke
By Buddy Henson, May 10, 2011 @ 1:36 pm
I have a 1965 chevy 230 engine that is going in my 1953 chevy 1/2 ton pickup. Will this engine bolt up to my stock 3 speed or will I have to change trannies? If it will, is there a floor shifter available on the market? I plan to install a 200-4R later on. Thanks
By Tom, May 11, 2011 @ 1:28 pm
The 1953 trans will bolt up but I don’t know of any shifter.
By Scott, May 4, 2011 @ 1:14 pm
your Holley Weber Rebuilt Carb, would this be a good replacement for my stock carter single barrel on my 1971 250? would i get any more horse power?
By james, May 3, 2011 @ 3:21 pm
hey, im now rebuilding a 57 chevy 235 and would like to purchase the stovebolt mini HEI, the only thing i need to be sure of is that it will fit properly to drive my oil pump? Will it go in far enough to engage the pump and are there any modifications required to make it work? thank you for the help.
By Matt, May 3, 2011 @ 8:39 am
i have a 76′ 250, does the offy 4 bbl fit that year as well? I didn’t see a year range.
By Tom, May 4, 2011 @ 12:10 am
Yes, if your engine has a non-integral type head.
By Blain Quinby, April 29, 2011 @ 1:00 am
Hello. I have a 1964 Chevrolet C10. I recently bought a 1972 250 and i was going to use 1967 292 mounts and mount towers, but when i set the motor in I discovered the passenger side bolt pattern was different and the towers did not line up. I have the original 1972 mounts for this motor but not the mount towers. Do you have any idea what towers I need or have any alternate solutions? Thanks,
By Tom, May 5, 2011 @ 1:49 pm
You need a 1964 230 passenger side mount and frame bracket from a 1963 – 1966 C-10.
Try LMC Truck or a junk yard.
By Jay, April 28, 2011 @ 12:43 pm
I was cleaning up a rocker arm set that I had planned on installing on the head that I just had hardened valve seats installed on. Unfortunately, There is some heavy wear on the underside of the shafts and a little scoring inside a couple of rocker arms. Do you sell replacement shafts and/or rocker arms or could you tell me where to find them?
P.S. I couldn’t be happier with the carbs and adapters I ordered from you last month, now if I could just get the engine together and running!
By Tom, May 5, 2011 @ 1:43 pm
Send them to Rocker Arm Specialists in California (530) 378-1075
They do great work.
By mike, April 28, 2011 @ 10:10 am
just trying to get my dual carbs set up, carter webers on the offy manifold. the spring force to open them is very high, and i thought i read somewhere i can remove some springs? is this right and if so what springs can i take off?
By Tom, May 5, 2011 @ 1:40 pm
Yes, remove the front gold spring on the primary shaft.
By ED O, April 26, 2011 @ 11:05 pm
I have a 67 c10 that came with a 292 engine. I am putting a 46 stude m5 body on it. I would like to goto a 2 carb offy manifold, heat plate and headers in this truck.
Am i right so far with what i need?
What carburators should i be looking at? I was told rochesters are too big for multiple cars and just junk anyways. i was told a set of carter wa-1 carbs with a non progressive linkage will do the job great?
By Tom, April 27, 2011 @ 10:50 am
I would use our Carter Weber progressive two barrels ($170.00 pair) on the Offy dual Carb manifold.
By big_jae, May 1, 2011 @ 2:18 pm
i have a 65 c10 with a 250, want to put a automatic trans in. will you adapters work for this application? thanks
By Tom, May 5, 2011 @ 2:04 pm
No adapter is required, this is a direct bolt up just like a V8.
By Bill Benson, April 26, 2011 @ 10:15 am
I Have a problem with a distributor for Chevy 292..
I need one, I was told the 250 would fit, ” NOT ”
Every thing Gear Up Works, the lower part is to short to reach
the OIL PUMP..I used a Shaft out of a 1952 Engine and the lower
part reached the pump, but the top wont mount to block ?????
Thanks for any help or Info Bill
By Tom, April 26, 2011 @ 11:11 pm
I think the parts you have are not what you think they are. Send pictures of the distributors and the engine to firstname.lastname@example.org. I can resolve your issue.
By Bob, April 26, 2011 @ 7:51 am
Tom, I found and purchased a brand new 292 engine which I would like to install in my 1953 Chevy 210 two door sedan. Do you have the motor mounts required for this application? I need a set of headers and would very much like your recommendation for those.. Thanks in advance!
By Tom, April 26, 2011 @ 11:28 pm
Yes, we have the mounts to install a 292 into your ’53 passenger car. You will need to move your radiator forward.
Yes, we can supply cast iron headers.
By ruben, April 26, 2011 @ 6:13 am
how are the electric chokes wired? do they need some sort of timer so they wont burn out?
By Tom, April 26, 2011 @ 11:20 pm
All electric chokes run a direct voltage feed. They are “on” all the time and are self regulating. (no timer)
By ruben, May 3, 2011 @ 6:39 am
where are they wired to?
By Jose, April 25, 2011 @ 2:58 am
Hey tom i have a 64 gmc stepside pickup and im wanting to do an engine swap but im not sure what engines nd trannys would fit. U have any suggestions?
By Tom, April 26, 2011 @ 11:37 pm
A Chevy 250 would be a very simple upgrade or a 292 could work but you would need a COMPLETE 292 including the passenger side motor and frame mount. (unique to 292)
By Ryan Newman, April 22, 2011 @ 10:50 am
I’ve got a ’52 Styleline Deluxe 2 Door with a 216/3 speed.
I’m going to be swapping in an early 60s 250, and was curious about your motor mount kits.
The current motor mounts appear to be welded in. If I buy your motor mount kit, do I just
need to cut my existing mounts off and drill the frame?
By Tom, April 22, 2011 @ 12:16 pm
Yes, you will need to remove the original frame mounts.
I think they were originally riveted to the frame.
By Craig, April 14, 2011 @ 7:41 pm
Tom, I have a 292 and I’m tired of having problems with clifford manifolds. I’m thinking of ordering a offy 5415 manifold and 9999 heat plate. Will this set-up clear the clifford shorty-type headers? Also, what carbs do you suggest I use with this manifold.
By Tom, April 17, 2011 @ 8:28 pm
I think the Offy Manifold will clear the Clifford shorty exhaust.
What is your problem with your Clifford? Maybe I can help you fix it.
I would use two of our “Carter Weber” OR “Holley Weber” progressive two barrels for good power and best driveability.
By Craig, April 17, 2011 @ 8:43 pm
Tom, The 1st clifford was so warped that I couldn’t get it to seal, the second was leaking coolent so bad that after the engine was off for a couple of days, the manifold was almost completely full. I now have no faith in Clifford.
By Don, April 7, 2011 @ 11:35 pm
Hi, 69 Nova stock 250 with a powerglide. What would be better the adaptor to the 2 barrel progressive Weber carb or the Offenhauser with the 390 four barrel Holley? Do you have the trans linkage for either of these? Fresh engine with 10,000 miles on it.
By Tom, June 24, 2011 @ 11:45 pm
The Offy and a small 4 BBL. Sorry, no linkage.
By Ken Hildreth, April 7, 2011 @ 11:54 am
I need advice. I have a 250ci chevy in my 65 Nova. I would like to put those Stovebolt headers on it but I have heard that there might be an issue with the steering rubbing on the headers. Is this true? and if it is what can I do about it?
By Tom, June 24, 2011 @ 11:41 pm
Our cast iron headers will fit with no problem.
By Nick, April 3, 2011 @ 1:37 am
Will the williams cast headers fit /work with a 1953 Corvette intake manifold?
By Tom, April 4, 2011 @ 12:36 pm
Yes, the Williams headers will work with the Corvette intake.
You will also need a heat plate to heat the intake manifold.
By Al, March 28, 2011 @ 1:22 pm
I have your mini HEI and round coil on my 261. I notice that the directions call for a 10 gauge wire to the positive side of the coil. Why a 10 gauge? I currently have a 12 gauge from the ignition switch on a 12vdc system.
By Larry R, March 27, 2011 @ 1:56 am
I have a 74 Camaro with an inline 250 and I purchased a “Kragen” replacement 1 BL and I am having all kinds of issues, now it seems like I am experiencing fuel starvation issues. I would like to purchase one of your 1BL->2BL adapters along with your Holly 2 BL, the motor is stock would there be a noticeable difference? The car is equipped with a 3 speed manual.
By Tom, March 29, 2011 @ 2:30 pm
The Holley Weber is a nice “minimal” upgrade that should boost H.P. by about 6 to 8 H.P.
By Larry R, March 30, 2011 @ 12:37 am
Thanks Tom, I will be placing my order for the adapter and carb on the 5th!! Is it possible to install a different manifold on the car (single carb setup) and gain a noticeable difference?
I really need to change the current setup the fuel starvation issue is a huge PITA right now.
By Bruce, April 3, 2011 @ 2:09 pm
What exhaust manifold are you running? If you have changed to a non-factory exhaust manifold or headers, you need a heat plate bolted up to the bottom of the intake.
By Tom, April 5, 2011 @ 1:56 pm
Yes, that is true.
By Al, March 24, 2011 @ 1:27 pm
I have a 261 with a single Rochester. Will replacing it with your holley-weber 2bbl help my mpg? Will the stock linkage work with your 1bbl to 2bbl adapter and holley-weber 2bbl?
By Tom, March 25, 2011 @ 10:19 am
If your carb is like new, the improvement will be minimal (1 M.P.G.). If your carb is defective the improvement could be very large (5 M.P.G.).

I am looking for a water pump pulley for a chevy 292 straight six. The 292 was pulled apart and cleaned up, some how the water pump pulley got misplaced and now I am having a tough time locating one. Help anyone?
By Tom, March 22, 2011 @ 3:31 pm
Draw me a sketch of what you want and I will look through my pulleys to see if I have a match.

i’m thinking of upgrading my 63 chevy biscayne 230 with 2 2barrel carbs, split exhaust, electronic distributor, and putting a T-5 tranny behind it. anybody ever do this tranny behind a 6?
By Tom, March 16, 2011 @ 2:15 pm
Yes, the T-5 is a very good (and easy) upgrade.
By mtc61, March 13, 2011 @ 3:48 pm
I own a 1961 Chevy K20 I am in the process of putting back together with the help of a 1960 C20 part donor truck. Both trucks have 235s and I am considering the following updates:
Mini HEI with Round Coil
Williams Cast headers
OFFY 2×1 Intake manifold with head plate
Dual Carter Weber Carbs (SKU 08-8011)
My questions are as follows:
1) Do you carry an alternator package for the 235 – brackets, plugs etc?
2) Does the OFFY intake use the stock gasket and alignment sleeves?
3) Is the price of $170 for the pair of Carter Weber Carbs or each carb?
4) Do you carry a linkage that will work for this setup?
5) Which air cleaners and filter element will work with the Carter Weber carbs?
By Tom, March 14, 2011 @ 8:00 pm
1) The bracket is available from Buffalo Enterprises (360-652-7684)
3) For a pair (2) – $170.00
4) Yes ($50.00)
5) Polished ($90.00 pr) or brushed ($60.00 pr) 7 1/2″
By Sam, March 13, 2011 @ 12:24 pm
Tom, I have a ’69 C-20 chevy truck and am currently restoring it. I would like to improve the performance as much as I can without taking the engine apart. As of right now it is all factory and the carb on it needs to be replaced. Thinking dual carb? New exhaust manifold? I think it is a inline 292.
What to buy? How much?
By Tom, March 14, 2011 @ 7:56 pm
Yes, I have this set-up on my 1971 Chevy pickup. It will work very nicely on your 292.
By Tom, April 27, 2011 @ 10:57 am
A small four barrel and dual exhaust would be your best choice.
By Robb, March 13, 2011 @ 10:12 am
Hey tom found your site on a search engine. Ive got a 292 with a 3×1 offie and rochester carbs. Thing is they need a rebuild and I cant find a kit. Is there a way to convert my offie to accept 3 dueces?
By Tom, March 14, 2011 @ 7:53 pm
We have carbs, adapters, linkage, and air cleaners to convert your Offy 3×1 intake. You may have an air cleaner clearance issue at the firewall. Call to discuss. (586-739-9601)
By Ryan, March 11, 2011 @ 10:06 am
I bought a 1982 c10 and it has a great running 250 l6 with the integral head. My only problem is that 2 of the bolts on the exhaust manifold were snapped off and have been called “un repairable” can someone point me in the right direction. I have tried all the local junk yards and each one that I find has the same issue
By Tom, March 22, 2011 @ 3:29 pm
If you remove the head then the two broken off bolts can be removed by “welding” them out or E.D.M.
I know this may not be practical but it is the only way.
You also may want to check flatness on the head and exhaust at this time.
By Tom, April 27, 2011 @ 11:16 am
If I understand your problem, you will need to remove the cylinder head to get the bolt out.
The bolt can be remove by:
- “Welding it out” with a Heli-Arc welder
- E.D.M. (Electro Discharge Machine)

Hey tom i have a 292 and ive built at tripple side draft intake for it , the question that ive been getting a lot of different answers about but nothing realy ferm , ive read everywhere that you need a heated manifold to make these engines run correctly on a normal down draft carb for street uses , but some of the people ive talked to say since the side draft carb is a totally different animal that i wouldnt need to heat the manifold ,and if thats true why would the carb change if the manifold needs to be heated ? and since you have been around these motors forever i fugared you would be the person to ask .
By Tom, March 11, 2011 @ 11:31 am
Yes, you need heat. Send a picture and let’s talk.

Adapter 1 BBL to 2 BBL will this work on a 1954 Chev 235 engine? the engine is bored 60 over running a mild cam, williams headers and stock intake. I live in the mountains and the stock carb runs rich in the mountains and fine in the valleys. Would like a 2bbl where I could adjust jets to get a better running car.
Getting car ready for a long tour with the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America and would like to get better mileage. A friend has a 2BBL on a cliffords manifold and gained about 4mpg. An old timer living next to me said he used an adaptor on original manifold and got better mileage over the original carb.?
By Tom, June 25, 2011 @ 12:00 am
Yes, the Holley Weber will work great on the stock intake.
By davidlee, February 23, 2011 @ 2:12 pm
hi i am running a 1974 nova inline 250. i running a 4 bbl carb will be boring motor out and was wondering if there is any aftermarket head for that or do i have to reman my stock head??
By Tom, June 25, 2011 @ 12:02 am
You should rebuild your stock head.
By Brian, February 8, 2011 @ 12:41 pm
I have a 292 I-6 I want to put in a rat rod. I’m using a 3.55 ford rear end and a t-5 trans. I want it to be a daily driver. What would you recommend as far as cam, intake, exhaust, etc.. I’m just looking for decent power without having to stop at ever gas station. Thanks for any help you can give me.
By Tom, February 8, 2011 @ 4:50 pm
Our Marine Cam would be a good choice with our cast iron headers and an OFFY 4 barrel or the OFFY dual Carb manifold with our dual Carter Weber two barrels.
By Adam, February 4, 2011 @ 11:48 pm
Does your 1bbl – 2bbl adapter (SKU 08-1015) fit the chevy 250 with integrated head? I need to go from the mono jet to a holley 2bbl.
By Tom, February 9, 2011 @ 3:49 pm
Yes, the adapter will fit the 1 BBL integrated head to adapt it to the Holly Weber 5200 progressive two barrel only.

i have 54 235 and im wanting to improve performance..heres what im think..fenton dual carb with adapters for carterweber carbs and heat plate for 235 and thermostat housing water spacer?? also thinking of getting fenton exhaust manifolds…
any advice or comments on this set up for my 235..
By Tom, January 27, 2011 @ 1:27 pm
Sounds like a good combination. Also, I would recommend our Mini HEI ignition.
By emilio, February 1, 2011 @ 5:03 am
excelent….how is the electric choke hooked up? any diagrams,thanks
By Steven, January 22, 2011 @ 10:24 pm
I have a 1963 230 chevy , stock cam , with a clifford intake and headers, and electronic ignition. Will the weber carbs you sell (single) work on my truck? Will it work well? Im looking for mileage.
By Tom, January 25, 2011 @ 2:01 pm
Our Weber carbs work well on a stock engine (140 H.P.) but work best in a dual carb application. Using a 2BBL on a 4 BBL manifold is not recommended. Is your Clifford manifold heated?
By Darryl, January 21, 2011 @ 11:46 pm
I have a 63 Chevy Nova with a 194 6 cylinder. I want to put the holley weber 2 barrel conversion on and wondered how much tuning is required out of the box and if so, where do I get main jets or pilot jets? Thanks
By Tom, January 25, 2011 @ 1:56 pm
The carb will work great out of the box. Call to order and discuss linkage issues. 586-739-9601
By james, January 20, 2011 @ 1:29 pm
Hello, im updating a 54 chevy pickup with original straight six 235 and would like to get as much power out of it as i can. Could you suggest a good intake/ carb setup? would your 4bbl intake fit my engine? any help is much appreciated.
By Tom, January 21, 2011 @ 3:41 pm
I would recommend the Offy dual Carburetor manifold and the William’s brand dual cast iron headers.
There is no 4 BBL intake for the 235 (except Clifford)
By James, January 18, 2011 @ 1:20 pm
I am buying an Offy 4 barrel manifold from a friend for my 1972 250 chevy six. it comes with a Holley 1850-1 carb which when I researched it online shows to be a 600 CFM carb. Is this carb too big for this engine? If so then what if I put an aftermarket cam in it?
By Tom, January 18, 2011 @ 3:29 pm
The 600 CFM Holley is TOO big for good drivability (300 CFM primaries).
You should use a 390 Holley or a 500 Edlebrock. The choice of camshaft will not change this.
By Jake, January 17, 2011 @ 8:23 pm
I’m build a 292 for a lobster boat and i want to put a cam in it. i read online there is a langdon HO marine cam for the 292, and i was wondering what the price of it was and where i could buy one, thanks
By Tom, January 18, 2011 @ 3:26 pm
Our high output 292 Marine Cam is $120.00 and normally in stock.
What is your maximum RPM for the engine?
By Jake, January 19, 2011 @ 8:16 am
I do not see the Marine Cam anywhere online in the online catalog.
By Al, January 17, 2011 @ 3:10 am
What is the outlet size on your Plymouth/Dodge dual exhaust manifolds?
By Tom, January 17, 2011 @ 11:39 am
The manifold is sized for 2 inch (O. D.) pipe.
By Jayde, January 11, 2011 @ 12:04 am
Hello Tom, greetings from Australia,
I have a 46 GMC fitted with a (January 1956, head casting number 3836848) 235 blueflame.
1- I want to fit an offenhauser 2 x 1bl intake, which one should I order?
2- I alreay have 1 x 420s Carter, should I find another or fit twin Rochesters or can you recommend a better twin setup?
3 – I want to fit twin exhaust headers what do you recommend? Fentons or your Stovebolt Cast Iron Exhaust Headers?
4 – I want to fit a finned Offenhauser alloy valve cover but my head only has 4 hold down bolts for the cover, the only covers I can find are the early 2 bolts on the top or the 7 bolt. What can I use?
Your advice would be appreciated. Jayde
By Tom, January 11, 2011 @ 2:27 pm
1- You should order our #10-1035
2- I would recommend our #08-8011 Carter Weber’s, Adapters, Linkage and Air Cleaners.
3- I would recommend our #42-0080 Fenton or Williams Brand Cast Iron headers.
4- The Offy usually comes with the two stud conversion kit to work with your cylinder head.
By kyle, January 5, 2011 @ 8:21 pm
hi i was wondering i have a 1972 c25 gmc with a 292, im wondering whether your 2×1 intake with your carter carbs would produce better power and driveability, then your 4bbl intake witha 4bbl carb with 390-450cfm? which is better in your opinion for a truck? my motor is mostly stock except with clifford headers and dual 2.25in exhaust, is a manual 4 spd and has really deep gearing @ 5.13s. i would like the intake system to support the motor up to 5500rpms as a cam swap is in the future. thank you so much for any advice as im hung on which intake system to get!
By Tom, January 6, 2011 @ 2:41 pm
Both carb set-ups should be the same for power but it is very important to water heat your intake manifold when you have headers.
Call (586-739-9601) to discuss an overdrive trans to help with your 5.13 axle rato.
By ted, January 5, 2011 @ 4:59 pm
I’m looking into fabbing a 4.3 throttle body off a Chevy manual Blazer onto a stock 194 intake manifold and plumbing the EGR valve into the stock manifold. I’m also wanting to split my stock manifold to run duel exhaust.
My question is; what exhaust pipe should I plumb the EGR valve into, front or rear.
By Tom, January 6, 2011 @ 3:08 pm
Plumb the EGR valve into the rear half assuming that you retain the heat box on the front half.
By Stephen Gottschalk, January 2, 2011 @ 3:06 pm
We bought a Holley 5200 Carb off of you for our 66 Ford about a month ago. We need a low profile oval air cleaner for it. We figured that we have 3 inches of height from the top of the carb to the hood. Do you sell one?
By Ben Morris, December 30, 2010 @ 11:49 pm
Tom, Love the site, I appreciate the love for the I6! Anyway, on to my question. Im looking to Turbo Charge my 74 250 at about 1 bar(14 psi). What Id like to do is create a fuel injection system(maybe even TBI) so I could tune it a little easier. What Id really like to do, is port the intake manifold for fuel injectors. Any chance you have any literature or could lead me in the right direction? I know the tbi setup would be much easier, with just getting a 4brl intake manifold, and a tbi off a small block. But come on, wouldn’t a direct injected inline be a whole lot cooler? Thanks, Ben.
By Tom, January 1, 2011 @ 11:57 am
Port fuel injection on the siamesed Chevy six ports does not work well. I would recommend the TBI type system.
By Jacob Small, December 23, 2010 @ 2:02 pm
I have a Chevy 230 in a 76 Nova and it still has the stock one bbl on it and it is starving for fuel so I
would very much like to throw a two bbl on it. What carb do you recomend and what would I need to get it on to my stock intake manifold? Also I would like to get some headers for it and what would you recomend? And do I need a heat plate for the bottom of the manifold?
By Tom, December 27, 2010 @ 3:57 pm
Our Holly Weber progressive two barrel will do a good job but you will need to re-mount your throttle cable and check for hood clearance.
Our cast iron headers would be your best choice for street use and with them you will need a heat plate to preserve good driveability.
By Bob Hammill, December 18, 2010 @ 2:05 pm
I have your Offy Intake 2 x 2 for a 54 chevy. Considering buying the Fenton exhaust. Will the stock linkage work or do I need the Fenton linkage kit as well.
By Tom, December 20, 2010 @ 10:11 am
You can bend your stock vertical rod or buy a new one from Patrick’s Antiques in Casa Grande, AZ.
By Glenn, December 16, 2010 @ 10:21 pm
How would your 2barrel into 1 and Holley carb work on a 230 Dodge flathead 6 with fluid drive? I understand it needs a dashpot/damper to keep the throttle from closing too quickly. Has this set up been done before?
By Tom, December 19, 2010 @ 2:39 pm
The carb will work great but I have no experience with the dashpot.
By randy, December 15, 2010 @ 2:39 pm
can i buy just thr flex plate
By Tom, December 16, 2010 @ 9:01 am
Yes you can.
By Roger, December 15, 2010 @ 8:24 am
I am interested in some detail on the twin weber carbs, sku 08-8011
Can you provide:
* The original application (Chevette maybe or other?)
* Venturi sizes? (Primary and secondary)
* Throttle bore sizes?
* Main jet sizes? (Primary and secondary)
* Idle jet sizes?
* Main air bleed sizes?
Guessing these carbs are smaller than the 32/36 “2-liter Pinto” Weber?
By Tom, December 16, 2010 @ 3:21 pm
Our “Carter Weber” carbs are actually Weber model 32 DFT as used on 1983 Ford Escort. they are NEW and have all factory fuel calibration jet sizes. We have sold over 1000 of these carbs with excellent feed back on (Dual Carb) applications from 200 to 292 Cubic inch engines.
By Ron, December 14, 2010 @ 10:52 pm
Tom you sound like the straight 6 guru. I have a 64 GMC pickup im reviving with a 230 l6. I got an HEI unit for her, also I have tubular headers for it, but im unsure about the carb, i have the stock 1bbl, but i also happen to own an offy 4bbl intake. with a stock 230, almost any 4 barrel is too much fuel, right? Is your 2bbl progressive with the stock intkae adapter the best way to go for throttle response?
By Tom, December 16, 2010 @ 3:25 pm
The Offy 4 BBL intake would be a good upgrade for your 230 but you definitely need our (HOT WATER) heat plate because your headers do not provide this feature.
A small 4 BBL carburetor would be your best choice. I would use an Edlebrock 500 or Holley 390.
By Mitch RIsh, December 14, 2010 @ 10:19 am
Will the mid 50′s – mid 60′s early rochester 4 BBL carb work with the chevy six . They were called wcfb I think and had a very tiny CFM rating . They have that period correct look about them . Just curious ?
By Tom, December 16, 2010 @ 9:05 am
The early Rochester was called the Model 4G (the WCFB was a small base Carter.) It could work okay if you are familiar with them and the carb was in good shape and was from an application with similar cubic inch. (use a 283 V8 carb on a 292.)
By mick, December 13, 2010 @ 1:57 am

By Ryan Young, December 6, 2010 @ 4:21 pm
I was wondering what is the best upgraded dual carb set up to install on my 54 chevy 235. I have the double carb Offenhauser intake, the old carbs don’t seem to be so good. I was looking at your carter-weber two barrel carb. Also do I need a adapter for the intake heat?
By Tom, December 6, 2010 @ 10:24 pm
Yes, our dual “Carter Webers” are the best set-up and our inlet manifold heat plate is a definate must for any carb combination.
By Bryce, December 3, 2010 @ 9:27 am
I’ve got a Offenhause DP Intake on a Ford 4.9l 300 cylinder. I am wanting to get a heat plate for the bottom of the intake. Would SKU 10-9999 water heat on a 250 work for the intake that I have? Or do you offer a heat plate setup for the Intake application I have? Please get back with me.
By Tom, December 6, 2010 @ 4:11 pm
NO, our heat plate will NOT work on your FORD 300 but if you send me a gasket, I will investigate what it would take to make one work.
By Adam, November 28, 2010 @ 3:44 pm
I have a stock Chevy 230 in a 64 Nova. Will the 1×4 Offy intake with Holly Weber 2bbl (and 2 to 4 bbl adapter) work with the stock exhaust? I was hoping to do the exhaust in the future.
By Tom, December 6, 2010 @ 4:23 pm
Yes, the combination would work but we do not have the adapter for the Holley Weber.
I would use a small four barrel on the Offy manifold.
By rsanchez919, November 27, 2010 @ 12:09 am
hi my name is richard i will like to know if this hei would work for my 250 inline six for my 70 chevy c10 step side also is this everything i need for it as well if you can get back to me asap i would like to buy by this weekend 11/26/10 thank you

By Dawn, November 22, 2010 @ 10:53 pm
I have a 66 6 cyl mustang with 200 engine all stock carb, ignition etc …
I m thinking about upgrading to progressive dual weber carb.
I ve read there s a few things to do on the throttle linkage and air filter (hood clearance issue) but as i understand the system on the mustang, i guess the ignitor had to be replace to (autolite orignial is vaccum driven by autolite 1100 carb) what ignitor will you suggest ?
BTW congrat s for the new website, looks great.
By Tom, November 23, 2010 @ 3:02 pm
I’m not familiar with FORD ignition but I would listen to the recommendations of the FOR 6 website.
Consider the original equipment FORD six electronic ignition as it is probably the best and most reliable.
By Joe, November 17, 2010 @ 1:56 pm
I’m in the United Kingdom and have a Dodge 230 in-line six. How much will an Offenhauser dual intake and a set of cast headers cost me with shipping? thanks, Joe
By Tom, November 18, 2010 @ 2:53 pm
Prices are as follows:
Offy 2×1 $245.00
Ply Headers $325.00
Shipping est. $140.00
I also suggest our water heating plate for the intake $30.00.
We can Ceramic coat the headers for an additional $125.00
Do you want linkage? For what carbs?
Can you pay by Pay-Pal? (we will send a request when the order is finalized)
Please let us know.
By John Ervin, November 16, 2010 @ 11:45 pm
Hello, I switched my Chevy 250 integral head engine for a non-integral one (1978). But I can’t find a detnet (kickdown) cable bracket. Anyone have one, know where to get one, or how to go about fabricating one? Thanks, John

By Tom, November 14, 2010 @ 11:23 pm
Yes, our headers will fit and work with the stock intake. I would highly recommend the Offy four barrel manifold and a small four barrel.
By Rob Bennett, November 14, 2010 @ 5:19 am
Hi guys . Im looking at purchasing a set of your motor mounts for a 292 chev . On your order form it says to call you , but Im in Australia and the time difference makes it a bit difficult . Is there any way we can do the order via email ? I will also be getting the bolt kit as well . Thanks, Rob .
By Tom, November 14, 2010 @ 11:42 pm
We can send you an invoice and a request for payment using Pay Pal. Will that work for you?
By Chris, November 7, 2010 @ 11:00 am
I have a 1950 Pontiac with a 239 ci flathead strait 6. I would like a dual carb intake manifold and would like to run 2 of the original Carter WA-1 717s carbs if possible. Will these manifolds fit my engine or are u able to fab one that will fit? Price? I have a stock exhaust manifold.
By Tom, November 7, 2010 @ 6:40 pm
Sorry, I have nothing for the Pontiac Flathead Six.
By Dan, November 5, 2010 @ 1:56 am
Hey Tom, I have an inline 6 230 with HEI in my truck. Would an offy 4bbl intake and a Holley 390 be a good upgrade? or is that too much carb for my engine?
Is your heat plates for the offy intakes as effective as the factory intake manifold? its cold up here in canada.
By Tom, November 5, 2010 @ 10:41 pm
The Offy 1×4 and Holley 390 (or Edlebrock 500) would make an excellent upgrade. Yes, our water heat plate works well here in Michigan on my truck.
By Paul, November 4, 2010 @ 1:43 pm
For a 230 in a ’64 Biscayne… would you recommend Offy’s dual carb or triple carb set-up?
By Tom, November 14, 2010 @ 11:09 pm
I would recommend the dual carb due to firewall clearance issues. Also, you need to check hood clearance. Call to discuss (586-739-9601).
By Mitch Rish, November 3, 2010 @ 10:00 pm
Are the motor mounts ( pictured ) for the 292 , or are these the same for the 230 ,250,292 . I was looking at the offset on one of the mounts . I have a 1951 3800 series 1 ton -looking to up date with a nice 250 that I have. Looks like it could save a lot of work. I figure I would use the 57 truck v-8 bellhousing and weld the tabs for the feet to bolt to – on to the existing crossmember- that way I dont have to remove that crossmember or worry about a rear trans mount.I would be able to keep my same drive shaft etc as well.
By Tom, November 14, 2010 @ 11:04 pm
The picture is a generic picture of our mounts. The 292 passenger side engine bracket is for the 292 only. The kit is for the 1/2 ton frame but can be easily adapted for your 1 ton frame.
By Mitch Rish, November 18, 2010 @ 11:11 pm
THanks for the information. Are their any differences between the 1 ton pickup and the 1/2 ton frame ( at least up in the front area ???) ? I just assumed the axles were the only differences – again thanks
By Joe, October 28, 2010 @ 9:36 am
Do you have motor mounts for a 235 for a 1952 Chevy sedan?
By Tom, October 28, 2010 @ 2:29 pm
We can convert your 1952 Chevy engine mount brackets to a 1958-1962 235 bolt pattern.
Call to discuss.

Will a chevy 230 L6 distributor fit in a chevy 235 L6
By Tom, October 28, 2010 @ 9:16 am
The 230 distributor will fit into the 235 engine but the gear and oil pump drive DO NOT align properly.
By Tom, October 28, 2010 @ 3:12 pm
The Chevy 230 distributor will fit into the 235 engine BUT the gear and oil pump drive DO NOT align properly.
The gear will not engage fully and failure will result.
I recommend our MINI HEI. (Requires 12 volts)
By Kyle, October 27, 2010 @ 12:22 pm
Would your engine mount kit work to install a later inline 6 (63 or later) in a 54 chevy?
By Tom, October 28, 2010 @ 9:23 am
Yes, we have sold many kits for this application.
By Tom, October 29, 2010 @ 9:48 am
Yes, our mount kit will work for your 230/250 into a ’54 Chevy.

I need to replace my stock carburator on my 1969 Chevy Nova’s 250 inline 6 engine. The engine is all stock and the car is used as a weekend driver. What carb do u recommend,and would i need to install a mounting bracket. Also do u sell the aftermarket linklage or would i need to have it fabricated
Thanks for your help
By Tom, October 25, 2010 @ 9:15 pm
I would recommend our Holley Weber progressive two barrel. You would need to fabricate linkage.
By Tom, December 15, 2010 @ 2:30 pm
Our Holley Weber will work well but we do not have linkage for your application.
By billy pennington, October 24, 2010 @ 9:23 am

By Tom, October 28, 2010 @ 9:26 am
Our Carter Weber would work the best. Call to discuss and order (586-739-9601).
By Tom, December 15, 2010 @ 2:31 pm
Our Carter Weber’s would work great.
By Eric M, October 18, 2010 @ 10:40 pm
I am in the market for a carb, I was recomended to your website from justih.org I am going to put it in my Scout that has a 152 CI engine, your website changed a bit (and prices) and your 2 BBL carbs are now sold 2 at a time? Can I order just one? I would also be interested in your 1 BBL to 2 BBL adaptor.
Also what are shipping prices? I tried going halfway through the checkout to find them but couldn’t, my ZIP is 59037.
By Tom, October 19, 2010 @ 3:54 pm
The best carb for you would be our Holley Weber Progressive two barrel ($75.00) and adapter ($15.00)
By Chad Cheshire, October 17, 2010 @ 9:51 pm

curious bout the dodge truck adapter does this kit make a t5 work with a mopar straight 6? and if so what else is needed to purchase..
By Tom, October 17, 2010 @ 7:01 pm
The Dodge truck adapter works only with the Dodge truck bellhousing. You also need a clutch disc and a shorter driveshaft.
By Miles D, October 14, 2010 @ 1:35 pm
I have a 230 that I would like to upgrade to dual carb. What is best bet and cost? Dual Carter and Offy? Linkage?
By Bruce, October 15, 2010 @ 4:16 pm

I have an 292 engine with integral manifold cylinder head. As i have a 250 marine cylinder head, will it fit
the 292 block?
By Tom, October 14, 2010 @ 9:33 am
By Joe Hyde, October 14, 2010 @ 11:55 am
Any idea the effect on compression ratio and or power? would i be better off to find an older 292 head? Appreciate your help very much.

Hello Tom! I’ve got a 1971 nova with a 250 and a powerglide. It has the rochester monojet carb, which i would like to replace. I’d like to keep the stock intake manifold. Do you sell any 1 or 2 bbl carbs that would bolt right up to my stock setup? Thank you in advance for your reply!
By Tom, October 13, 2010 @ 5:26 pm
We do have a Holley Weber Progressive two barrel carb but is not a “bolt on” and requires linkage fabrication.
By Bill, October 12, 2010 @ 11:22 pm
So whcih linkage do you reccomend with my 1969 GMC 910 292 inline for the 4bbl carb intake manifold?
By Jerome, October 10, 2010 @ 7:58 pm
I have an ’83 Chevy with a 250 engine. I want to get as much torque as I can get. Should I go with 2 or 3 1bbl carb’s or go to the 4 bbl?
By Tom, October 11, 2010 @ 7:47 pm
All the carb “set-ups” are basicly on the same log inlet manifold and thus make the same torque. You need more cubic inches.

i would like to use the cast iron headers for a chevy 250 SKU 42-0070. What do you use to heat the intake?
By Tom, October 11, 2010 @ 7:45 pm
Use our heat plate with hot water plumbed to it. ( P/N 10-9999)

hi my name is jake and im looking for performance parts for my 54 chrysler flathead six, it has a 265. do you have any parts other than a distributer for it? thank you
By Tom, October 13, 2010 @ 5:58 pm
We have made custom manifolds and headers for this engine. You would need to call to discuss details.
By Tom, October 18, 2010 @ 1:35 pm
We can custom make inlet or exhaust manifolds for the Chrysler 265 flathead. Call to discuss details and to order (586-739-9601). Pictures are available in our online catalog.

I am planning on buying from you for my 292 SKU42-0070 and SKU10-5416 and plan to use a 500 edlebrock will I need a heat plate and do you have linkage, this will all be going in my 50 chevy

By Tom, October 13, 2010 @ 5:48 pm
Call (586-739-9601) and ask for our truck linkage. It’s a speciality item that is not listed in our catalog.
By Tom, October 2, 2010 @ 1:26 pm
I have an older clifford intake on my 250 which is not water heated. Can one of your water heat plates work on my intake?
By Tom, October 5, 2010 @ 12:29 pm
No, sorry our heat plate will not work. An unheated old Clifford Intake does not provide good driveability and I wouldn’t recommend using it.
By david, October 1, 2010 @ 5:13 pm
hey i am planning on getting your 4bbl intake for my 250/ what carb do u guys recommend and will i be able to use my current linkage or will i need to get that as well?
By Tom, October 4, 2010 @ 9:41 am
Use a Holley 390 or Edlebrock 500 four barrel for your 250. You will need linkage to suit your vehicle.
By Bill, September 30, 2010 @ 10:37 pm
Does the 4bbl intake manifold, and linkage come with instructions?
By Tom, September 30, 2010 @ 11:35 pm
There are no instructions with the manifold. The 4 bbl linkage type must be matched to the type of vehicle you have. It is sold seperate from the intake manifold. A picture or sketch will be provided.
By Bill, September 30, 2010 @ 10:33 pm
Hey i want to buy your offy 4barrel intake manifold for my 292inline gm engine, and i was wondering what is the biggest carb you could run on it getting max performance without it bogging or anything. thanx Bill
By Tom, September 30, 2010 @ 11:39 pm
A Holley 390 or Edlebrock 500 cfm will work great on your 292. It will also be required to heat your intake manifold with our heat plate or the factory exhaust manifold. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. NOTE: See tech tip on “Why you need to heat your manifold”.
By Bo, September 30, 2010 @ 5:49 pm
Hi, i heard that yall make a supercharger kit?
By Tom, September 30, 2010 @ 9:00 pm
Sorry, no – we have not sold any supercharger kits or parts in the last 12 years.
By sean, September 27, 2010 @ 10:54 pm
which inlet manifold heat plate for the chevy 292 and how is it connected?
By Tom, September 28, 2010 @ 8:40 am
Our part # 10-9999 will work on a 292. It attaches with the original 3 bolt holes like the factory exhaust manifold attaches to the factory intake manifold.
By Dom, September 24, 2010 @ 4:57 pm
Hello, I am trying to fix up a 1964 Chevy Impala with a 250 straight six. Would your headers work with this motor (42-0070)? Also thinking about purchasing the Offi intake manifold 5416, what type of carb could I run off that intake. Thank You for your help.
By Tom, September 25, 2010 @ 8:58 am
Yes, our headers will work on your ’64 Impala. Also, the Offy 1×4 inlet manifold will make a nice upgrade.
By bill robertson, September 24, 2010 @ 3:47 pm
I am looking for headers for a 67 nova with a 250 6 cylinder engine. any help?
By Bruce, September 24, 2010 @ 4:31 pm

I ORDERED THE SPLIT HEADERS FOR A 250 FROM STOVEBOLT. COULDN’T BE HAPPIER; THEY’RE GREAT.
By Mike Harrison, February 12, 2011 @ 6:38 pm
Is this a two door? Great car I had one in the 70s and would love to find one to replace that one.
By Jason Proper, September 15, 2010 @ 2:41 pm

By Moses, February 10, 2011 @ 8:59 am
Wanted to know if you have anything for a 68 chevy Impala Inline 6. I am looking for a Carb, Right now it has a 1bbl and i would like to change it to a 2 bbl. Anything in stock
By Tom, February 10, 2011 @ 5:03 pm
